Avenue H from 2nd Street to 6th Street Closed for Road Construction

2nd to 6th Street.png

Effective immediately the following detour has been established:  Eastbound Highway 61 traffic will turn North (left) onto 7th Street and proceed to Avenue E, turning right at Avenue E and travelling East to 2nd Street. Westbound Highway 61 traffic will turn West (right) onto Avenue E and proceed to 7th Street, turning South (left) onto 7th Street and proceeding to Avenue H (end of detour). The City of Fort Madison will be assessing the traffic on the detour and placing “no parking” signs as needed to help with the flow of traffic.

This is one of several projects planned for the Highway 61 Business Route. Weather permitting, this project should be open to traffic by November 15, 2020. The project has been designed to allow for access to Riverview Park and for traffic to cross the BNSF Mississippi River Bridge during construction.
